The Earth Day Symposium provides a two-day training and networking program for local government staff, officials and the professional community to provide continuing education in a specific topic. Earth Day symposia typically focus on current challenges and opportunities relating to water quality and stormwater management. In 2013, our program will focus on the impacts of climate change on water resources and subsequent adaptation strategies. Join us!

Symposium Planning Committee
Year after year, the Symposium is stitched together by a team of volunteer professionals and community leaders under the facilitation of St. Louis Earth Day. Without their help, the event would pale in comparison to the vibrant program that returns year after year, adapting to reflect the interests of the planning committee and the most pressing environmental issues of the day.
